Europe’s biggest startup
and tech event
Given the evolution and the gravity of the situation regarding COVID-19, the fifth edition of Viva Technology will not take place June 11-13. Alternative solutions are being studied, in concertation with the main partners of the event, and will be announced soon.
The containment measures decreed by the national authorities in France now make it impossible to prepare and organize the event on the dates originally planned. Especially since, as announced, the containment is likely to be extended as has been the case in China and Italy. VivaTech's priority is to guarantee the health and safety of visitors, partners and staff and to show solidarity and responsibility in the face of this health crisis.
Our thoughts are with all those affected by this crisis.
Europe’s biggest startup
and tech event
We bring together people, from startups, corporates and VCs, to ignite growth, business transformation and positive change. Our 3-day annual conference has become, in only 4 years, the biggest gateway in Europe for innovation actors worldwide.
We create the conditions to spark positive change. By helping startups and major corporate groups become the digital champions of tomorrow, succeed in their digital transformation, and innovate collectively for the common good.
"VivaTech remains the go-to annual event which brings together the Paris, French and European tech scene in the one place. It’s great to get a download from the variety of founders and investors who attend every year."
Mike Butcher, Editor at large TechCrunch
